New "Share the joy" campaign promotes shared parental leave rights for parents
On 12 February 2018, the Government will launch an advertising campaign to encourage parents to take up the offer of shared parental leave in their baby's first year. The workplace right for eligible parents allows them to share up to 50 weeks of leave and 37 weeks of pay after having a child. Around 285,000 couples every year are eligible but take up could be as low as 2%, with around half of the public unaware that the option even exists.https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-share-the-joy-campaign-promotes-shared-parental-leave-rights-for-parents
